NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
257 am CST Thu Nov 27 2014 


Short term...(today through saturday) 
issued at 257 am CST Thursday Nov 27 2014 


The light snows are in the process of diminishing and it should be 
done by sunrise. Not sure just how much has fallen, but from 
pictures and reports on social media, it appears that an inch or a 
bit more has fallen over portions of southwest Indiana and 
northwest Kentucky overnight. Most of it appears to be on elevated 
surfaces, as temperatures have fallen to or just below freezing 
only along and north of I-64. Will keep an eye out for reports 
after sunrise, and may issue a Special Weather Statement for slick 
spots mainly on bridges this morning for Holiday travelers. 


Although, it appears that our Thanksgiving day will be dry, it 
will not be a very nice day overall. Went very conservative in 
clearing the low clouds from west to east mainly this afternoon. 
With the clouds, gusty northwest winds, and temperatures 
struggling to warm through the 30s, it will feel quite cold today. 
The surface high will be settling over the area late today, so the 
winds will be gradually diminishing this afternoon. Less wind and 
more sunshine will make it feel a little better this afternoon. 


Good radiational cooling is expected throughout the area tonight, 
with the surface high overhead and a dry northwest flow aloft. The 
cooler mav looks better than the milder met for lows, but it may 
not be cold enough. As the flow aloft becomes more zonal, gusty 
south winds will develop quickly Friday. The consensus of guidance 
looks good for highs. 


A tight pressure gradient will persist Friday night through 
Saturday. The 00z models continue to saturate the surface to 850mb 
layer quickly late Friday night and keep it saturated through the 
day Saturday. Had to fabricate some hefty sky cover grids to do it 
Justice. With the wind, clouds, and possibly some drizzle, Saturday 
is not looking like the most pleasant of days. Trended down just a 
bit for highs, but the forecast is still closer to the warmer mav 
guidance. The slightly milder met guidance looks good for lows 
Friday night. 


Long term...(saturday night through wednesday) 
issued at 257 am CST Thursday Nov 27 2014 


Despite a quasi-zonal upper level flow pattern during the long term 
period, a couple of surface frontal systems will bring changeable 
weather. 


The first cold front will sweep southeast across our region on 
Sunday night. This front will be preceded by a strong southwest low 
level jet, around 50 knots at 850 mb. Though very dry air will 
persist through most of the lower trop, a shallow layer of very high 
rh levels is forecast below 850 mb. The 00z GFS and its ensemble 
mean generate some very light qpf Saturday night and Sunday, which 
is most likely depicting drizzle or sprinkles. Since the moisture 
depth is very shallow, pops will be only in the slight chance 
category for most of the region through Sunday. The extensive 
cloudiness, low sun angle, and weak lapse rates should inhibit 
mixing down of the strong winds just above the surface. 


The 00z GFS/gefs mean are in agreement that rain will develop along 
and behind the front as it moves through the lower Ohio Valley and 
southeast Missouri Sunday night. The Post-frontal rain will persist 
through Monday. Some sleet cannot be ruled out at the tail end of 
the event, depending on how quickly the colder air arrives. There 
will be A Reservoir of Arctic air to our north as a 1040 mb high 
passes over the upper Mississippi Valley on Monday. Will introduce a 
mention of sleet in parts of southern Illinois and southeast MO late 
Sunday night into Monday. It appears the sub-freezing layer will be 
below 850 mb, too shallow for snow. The new 00z ECMWF is slower with 
the front, delaying the onset and departure of precip about 12 hours 
longer than the GFS. 


As for Tuesday and Wednesday, there should be a brief period of dry 
weather before a weak shortwave approaches. There will be only a 
short window of opportunity for moisture return ahead of this 
system, so pops will be mainly in the slight chance category. Temps 
will moderate ahead of the system and its associated cold front.

Aviation... 
issued at 1135 PM CST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


The bulk of the snow is falling over the kevv/kowb areas with snow 
flurries or light rain/drizzle falling at kcgi/kpah. The 
precipitation will likely last several hours and come to an end by 
around 09z. MVFR (or lower) conditions will linger overnight into 
Thanksgiving morning. Winds will become northwesterly by tonight 
and into tomorrow as the low departs. We should start seeing a 
break in the ceilings during the afternoon hours.
